Charles Comiskey, the owner of the 1919 Chicago White Sox, was a chiseler that refused to pay his players what they were worth. This made them susceptible to corruption. The players were approached by gamblers to throw the World Series against the Cincinnati Reds that year in exchange for money.
Arnold Rothstein, a Jewish mob boss, probably played a big part in this scandal, but nothing was ever proven. Seems that the previous records of the grand jury confessions by the players had been lost during the trial.
In the movie, “Eight Men Out,” the gamblers knew that the fix was in after the pitcher hit the first batter.
As more information unfolds, we’re finding that Trump had missiles dropped on an almost empty airbase that did so little damage that they are still flying out of there and that many of the missiles failed to hit their intended target. This sort of thing reminds me of the Israelis bombing their own (stolen) territory resulting in little real damage so they can justify launching their newest weapons systems on the Palestinians. Arms buyers then get a product that has been battlefield tested.
But why did Trump have this done? Was it a beta-test to see how his supporters would react?
I’m beginning to wonder if this strike was a precursor for another false-flag “retaliation” a little further down the line. If there was no real damage, are their factions within Syria and Russia that are also a part of this? And why was the Chinese president visiting Trump at the time the missiles were being fired?
Although acquitted at trial due to insufficient evidence, eight of the White Sox players (now forever known as the Black Sox) were banned from professional baseball for life. This included Shoeless Joe Jackson who batted .375 during the Series.
Currently, I don’t know how many other players are involved in this latest scam. All I know for sure is that Trump just hit the first batter.
